‘Star Trek Beyond’

star_trek_beyond_ver2I loved the 2009 reboot with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto et al – but its been a downhill interstellar journey since then.

Sure, it tells its story well enough – but that story has been told a million times before (and in other Star Trek stories of long ago). The Federation has pissed someone off in the past and now they want revenge. Cue mass destruction (or threat thereof) of fleets, planets, solar systems.

But at least this was not just about Kirk and Spock and their macho strutting – under director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious, Fast & Furious 6), the Enterprise crew and the building of the team was much in evidence.
